A student must take an English course each year he is enrolled at Brother Martin. This requirement reflects the fact that not only do most college degree programs demand an average of four years of English but also that proficiency in the language arts is indispensable to learning. The skills of reading, oral and written self-expression and research are valuable tools in the study of any subject. Because of the multidisciplinary nature of the English curriculum, students are expected to buy workbooks, handbooks, and paperback books as supplements to the state-provided textbooks.
